Go See It: Mouse on the Keys @ Soda Bar – Nov 10, 2016

This is not one to be missed!  Mouse on the Keys are a trio from Japan that blends math rock with, jazz and classical piano aesthetics.  Really interesting and inventive stuff.  Hard to describe but easy to enjoy! Two of the members were from the well-known Tokyo-based band Nine Days Wonder, who were active in the 1990s and recently payed a reunion show. Mouse on the Keys are doing their first tour of the United States with LITE (also from Japan) after successful runs Europe and Asia. I’ve been looking forward to this one for a while. See you there!Mouse on the KeysFrom the Mouse on the Keys Website:
“A blend of minimal phrased piano and dynamic drumming.
The pursuit of a live experience composed of visual and audio expression. Formed in 2006, with elements of jazz, funk, post‐rock and electronic music, Mouse on the Keys fits into a genre of their own.
The trio consists of two former members of the influential Japanese underground band Nine Days Wonder, Akira Kawasaki and Atsushi Kiyota.
They teamed up with Daisuke Niitome, who has played drums as well as composed music for countless jazz‐funk and hip hop bands. Their unique sound, comprising two pianos, two keyboards and drums, continue to stand at the forefront of the Japanese indie scene.”
